American Made, Ticonderoga "Little Tyke" Hand Forged Iron Corbels and Braces from the Adirondack Mountains and Lake Champlain
The Ticonderoga corbel is named after the infamous town and fort located on the huge lake in the eastern Adirondack Mountains bordering both New York and Vermont. It adds a burly, stylish yet subtle industrial touch to any decor! This design is a simple and true blacksmith-made bracket. The Ticonderoga is possibly one of the strongest household brackets you'll find. This is the perfect corbel for any fireplace and mantle or beneath a counter or bar top. The Ticonderoga line of brackets includes wide A-symmetrical gusset, four heavy 5/16" rivets and heavy duty 1/4" thick steel stock at 4" wide (only).
Listing is for a pair of brackets.

Shelf Bracket Finishes:
